Inter's Forlán facing further month out

FC Internazionale Milano are expected to do without Diego Forlán for the next four weeks after the striker sustained his second thigh injury since joining the club last summer.

FC Internazionale Milano are likely to be without Uruguayan international Diego Forlán for the next four weeks after the striker injured his right thigh in training.

Since moving to Inter last summer, the 32-year-old former Club Atlético de Madrid forward has made just nine Serie A appearances – scoring once – as a result of another muscular injury to his left thigh, which he suffered on international duty in October.

Though the exact length of Forlán's latest lay-off remains unclear, the 2010 UEFA Europa League winner is expected to be sidelined for at least a month. Inter face Olympique de Marseille in their UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg at the Stade Vélodrome on 22 February, with the return game taking place at San Siro on 13 March.
